People Have A ‘Fundamental Right’ To Own Assault Weapons, Court Rules

People Have A ‘Fundamental Right’ To Own Assault Weapons, Court Rules

avatar
In a major victory for gun rights advocates, a federal appeals court on Thursday sided with a broad coalition of gun owners, businesses and organizations that challenged the constitutionality of a Maryland ban on assault weapons and other laws aimed at curbing gun violence. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit said the state’s prohibition on what the court called “the vast majority of semi-automatic rifles commonly kept by several million American citizens” amounted to a violation of their rights under the Constitution. “In our view, Maryland law implicates the core protection of the Second Amendment — the right of law-abiding responsible citizens to use arms in defense of hearth and home,” Chief Judge William Traxler wrote in the divided ruling. Provisions that outlaw these firearms, Traxler wrote, “substantially burden this fundamental right.” Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who recently suspended his Democratic presidential campaign, signed Maryland’s Firearm Safety Act of 2013 in the wake of the school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, which spurred similar initiatives in other Democratic-leaning states. The legislation mostly targets specific kinds of semi-automatic firearms — such as AR-15s and AK-47s — and large-capacity magazines, and adds certain registration and licensing requirements. But gun rights advocates, including the National Rifle Association, quickly moved to challenge these laws in the courts, claiming that the restrictions they imposed on lawful gun ownership were overly broad and weren’t proven to save lives. “This case was a major victory for the NRA and gun rights advocates.” Adam Winkler, UCLA law professor The legal attacks have largely failed. Last October, a federal appeals court in Manhattan upheld the most iconic of these laws — those passed in New York and Connecticut in direct response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. And in December, the Supreme Court declined to review a ruling out of Illinois that upheld a similar ban on assault weapons. The high court’s reluctance to intervene in these disputes has left the Second Amendment in a bit of a state of flux. Since the Supreme Court established in 2008 and 2010 that the amendment protects a personal right to keep and bear arms for self-defense within the home,...

Chuck Norris Calls Out Monsanto For Killing Food Supply

Chuck Norris Calls Out Monsanto For Killing Food Supply

avatar
  Chuck Norris has set his sights on Monsanto’s agenda. He has recently released a detailed article speaking out against Monsanto. Everything from their decimation of the food supply to their hazardous Roundup herbicide has been focused within his article. The article, ‘Chuck Norris raises the red flag over Monsanto’, was featured on World Net Daily. In the article Norris speaks out against Monsanto’s destructive force, specifically the use of glyphosate (used in Roundup) and the effects it has. “…Monsanto began marketing glyphosate under the Roundup name in the 1970s, and it quickly became an industry standard. In 1997, its use tripled with the introduction of Monsanto’s Roundup Ready crops, plantings genetically modified to withstand glyphosate in order to enable farmers to use more of the herbicide in killing crop-threatening weeds. Glyphosate is sprayed on most of the corn and soybean crops in the United States, as well as over sugar beets, canola and other crops. In 2007 alone, the agricultural sector applied between 180 million and 185 million pounds of glyphosate to crops in this country. The home and garden sector applied 5 million to 8 million pounds, and industry, commerce and government applied 13 million to 15 million pounds of glyphosate. It was the most widely used herbicide in U.S. agriculture and second-most widely used herbicide in the home and garden sector. … The only real way you have of knowing whether glyphosate traces or residue is in the food you eat is if you grow it yourself or only buy products that are certified organic. The EPA promised a completed preliminary risk assessment of glyphosate by the end of last year.” When a public figure speaks out against Monsanto it shows just how far we have come in spreading the word about this corporation’s attempt to dominate our food supply. Let’s hope that the masses of the world will listen to Norris’ words and decide to join the fight against Monsanto.   Read http://www.ewao.com/a/1-chuck-norris-calls-out-monsanto-for-killing-food-supply/...

  Billionaire Donald Trump’s name has been tossed in the ring for the Nobel Peace Prize, according to Kristian Berg Harpviken, head of the Peace Research Institute in Oslo. The Republican presidential candidate was proposed by a U.S. nominator, who Harpviken did not identify, who cited the billionaire’s “vigorous peace through strength ideology” in the nomination. But, just because Trump received a nomination, doesn’t mean he is in contention. He is not listed among those with a chance of winning, Harpviken told Reuters. Representatives from Trump’s campaign did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment. Throughout his bid for presidency, Trump has been widely criticized for his anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant rhetoric.   Read more...

Stop the Putin Worship! He’s a Former KGB Thug Working for the Bankers

Stop the Putin Worship! He’s a Former KGB Thug Working for the Bankers

avatar
Being a former college basketball coach, I marvel at the skill of a good strategist who can carry out a game plan. Vladimir Putin would have been a great college basketball coach, a masterful poker player, great chess player, a top used car salesman and he is an excellent leader of his country when it comes to foreign policy. Putin has made the Federal Reserve, Wall Street and our government look amateurish. If it wasn’t for the fact that Putin has the potential to be one of the most despotic figures in all of history, I would be a fan of his cunning and his ability to carry out an agenda on multiple fronts with precision and skill. However, there is one group that Putin does not outfox, out-strategize and out maneuver; that would be the forces controlling the Bank of International Settlement (BIS). Putin is developing almost a cult following among some people in the alternative media. To them, he represents a man with the force of conviction to tell international banking to go to hell. To these well-intentioned, but misguided analysts, Putin has succeeded where other world leaders have lost their lives (e.g. JFK, Hussein, etc.). As romantic and appealing as a superhero may be who will ride in and save the world from the evil bankers, nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to Putin. Whether Putin realizes it or not, he is doing the complete bidding of the big boys at the BIS and everything is moving right along according to plan. This article explores the fact that Putin, although he may be, on the surface, resisting international banking on one level, he is very much under their control on another level. This article will also explore the implications for these events upon the American people. The Starting Point In the alternative media, many make the mistake of speaking about the “banksters” as if they were one entity all working towards the same goal which is the establishment of a singular economic system which controls the planet through rabid debt management. Generally, this is true. However, the process of international banking is compartmentalized and when goals are not met, we see divisions...

Corrupt Silk Road Investigator Re-Arrested for Allegedly Trying to Flee the US

Corrupt Silk Road Investigator Re-Arrested for Allegedly Trying to Flee the US

avatar
Just when the Silk Road’s saga of dirty money and double-dealing seemed to be winding down, one of the federal agents who investigated the site has added an audacious footnote: What looks like a brazen attempt to flee the United States after he was convicted and sentenced to prison for corruption in his handling of the case. Former Secret Service agent Shaun Bridges was re-arrested on Thursday of last week, just a day before he was scheduled to turn himself in at a Baltimore prison to begin serving a 71-month prison sentence. Bridges pleaded guilty in October to charges of money laundering and obstruction of justice and was released on bail; he confessed that as part of the team investigating the Silk Road anonymous drug market he had secretly stolen around $800,000 worth of bitcoins from the site and placed them in his own account. Federal agents seized hundreds of thousands of dollars in his possession, and he was sentenced to pay another half a million dollars in restitution. But despite his guilty plea, Bridges may have planned to escape his prison sentence and leave the country, potentially taking more hidden wealth with him. According to a filing from prosecutors in the Northern District of California last week, the agents who arrested Bridges found that he’d packed his passport, a cell phone, documents related to his wife’s application for citizenship in another country, and corporate records for at least three “offshore entities” in Belize, Nevis and Mauritius (including one that had been created after his guilty plea) into two briefcases. They also found a MacBook with its serial number scratched off and bulletproof vests, at least one of which prosecutors believe Bridges stole from the Secret Service. Exactly what that collection of evidence adds up to isn’t clear, but prosecutors argue that it shows that Bridges didn’t plan to report to prison as promised. “It should be noted that this was not the sum of evidence agents recovered,” the prosecutors’ filing notes. “Rather, the government is only including facts here that it believes are relevant to the defendant’s risk of flight.” The arrest, which was first noted by the Baltimore Sun on Friday, comes as the corruption in the...

COVER-UP: US Navy sailors disappear as government, doctors bury truth about Fukushima radiation

COVER-UP: US Navy sailors disappear as government, doctors bury truth about Fukushima radiation

avatar
U.S. Navy sailors exposed to radioactive fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster have been falling ill, even as the Defense Department insists that they were not exposed to dangerous levels of radiation. Many of the sailors have now joined in a class action lawsuit against Fukushima operators and builders Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), Toshiba, Hitachi, Ebasco and General Electric. Even if they wanted to — which many do not — the sailors would be unable to sue the Navy. According to a Supreme Court ruling from the 1950s known as the Feres Doctrine, soldiers cannot sue the government for injuries resulting directly from their military service. Mocked and attacked On March 11, 2011, a massive earthquake and tsunami triggered multiple meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan. It was the worst nuclear disaster in history, releasing twice as much radioactive material as the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. That same day, the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan was redirected to the coast of Japan to participate in relief work for tsunami survivors. When sailors from the ship later began to fall ill, Congress asked the Defense Department for a report on the issue. The Pentagon report concluded that the sailors had not been exposed to enough radiation or contaminated water to cause health effects. Yet in the four years since the disaster, at least 500 sailors have fallen ill, and 247 of them have joined the class-action suit. The 100-page legal complaint chronicles their symptoms: an airplane mechanic suffering from unexplained muscle wasting; a woman whose baby was born ill; a sailor told his health problems must be genetic, even though his identical twin is perfectly healthy; and case after case of cancer, internal bleeding, abscesses, thyroid dysfunction and birth defects. The defendants initially claimed that they could not be sued in a U.S. court, so plaintiffs’ attorney Paul Garner asked the sailors to come to a court hearing in San Diego, to offer moral support. Nearly all of them refused, for fear of public attack. Initial plaintiff Lindsey Cooper, for example, had already been mocked by atomic energy experts on CNN and by conservative radio hosts. Others were afraid of being perceived as anti-military, or un-American....

  With all the controversy surrounding the #BlackLivesMatter movement, it’s rare for a company as massive as Chick-fil-A to take a stand – but they have. A counter movement has come out of the media wreckage called #PoliceLivesMatter that urges citizens to respect police and understand that they are here to serve and protect, and that if you abide by the law and cooperate like a mature law-abiding citizen, you’ll be protected. Just months after a Dunkin’ Donuts employee wrote ‘#blacklivesmatter’ on a police officer’s coffee cup while another was refused service, and a month after a Starbuck’s refused to allow an officer to use their restroom, Chick-Fil-A is showing they have the backs of law enforcement. Chick-fil-A issued “Back The Blue” t-shirts to it’s employees to help bring support to our law enforcement officers. backtoblue Chick-fil-A said they wanted to show support for #PoliceLivesMatter because they are serving us on the streets every day and that a lot of negative derogatory rhetoric has come their way over the past few months.

Ketamine found to have an “unbelievable” effect in treating severe depression

Ketamine found to have an “unbelievable” effect in treating severe depression

avatar
“The most significant advance in mental health in more than half a century.” It’s probably not the first place you’d go to find relief from severe clinical depression, but the psychedelic party drug ketamine has revealed itself to be something of a ‘miracle drug’, performing far more quickly and effectively than traditional antidepressants and mood stabilisers. Where current treatments take weeks to work – and then might not work at all, depending on the patient – ketamine has been shown to treat the symptoms of depression within hours. “It’s not subtle. It’s really obvious if it’s going to be effective,” Enrique Abreu, a Portland-based doctor who began treating depressed patients with ketamine in 2012, told The Washington Post. “And the response rate is unbelievable. This drug is 75 percent effective, which means that three-quarters of my patients do well. Nothing in medicine has those kind of numbers.” Also known as Special K, ketamine first came on the scene as an hallucinogenic club drug in the 1960s, but has since been embraced by emergency rooms as a quick and easy anaesthetic. It’s used as an anaesthetic for children with broken bones, during emergency surgery in war zones, and is often given to patients in burn centres as a sedative. But over the past decade, the drug’s enormous potential in the treatment of mental health issues has become a focus for researchers and psychiatrists trying to come up with a solution to severe depression where currently available medications have failed. “Since 2006, dozens of studies have reported that it can also reverse the kind of severe depression that traditional antidepressants often don’t touch,” Sara Solovitch reports for The Washington Post. “Experts are calling it the most significant advance in mental health in more than half a century.” Why is a new treatment option for depression so exciting? Put simply, for many people with severe depression, the drugs available to them – known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) – pretty much suck. Not only do they take three to eight weeks to actually have an effect, but once you make it through those months of waiting, there’s no guarantee they’ll actually work for you. As we reported back in July, SSRIs...

Across the country thousands upon thousands of young people flocked to our message of limited government, privacy, criminal justice reform and a reasonable foreign policy. Brushfires of Liberty were ignited, and those will carry on, as will I. Paul’s announcement follows the Iowa caucus on Monday, where he came in fifth place behind GOP contenders Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, Marco Rubio and Ben Carson. In his statement, Paul said although he is suspending his campaign, “the fight is far from over,” and he will focus his efforts on his work as a senator. Although, today I will suspend my campaign for President, the fight is far from over.

P. Diddy Abandons “Vote or Die” Movement, Says Voting Is A “Scam”

  Some people can really only take so much of the political process before they give up on the system entirely. This is especially true in modern times, where every candidate is pro-war and pro-establishment. Obama was the last hope for many people who thought a politician could change things, but when Obama brought more of the same, some people became awake to the reality that politicians are usually con artists and that the entire political system is a scam. Even P. Diddy, the rapper formerly known as Puff Daddy, admitted in a recent interview that voting is a scam. This is ironic considering Diddy was the figurehead of the “Vote or Die” movement, which encouraged young people to vote for nearly a decade. During a Q&A at Revolt’s music conference, Diddy was asked about the upcoming elections — and his answer was surprisingly refreshing. Diddy told the audience: “See the things [sic] that’s tricky about politics is there’s so much bullshit with it. We started Vote or Die and… and from the community we’re in, we’re not with hearing too much of the bullshit. So that’s why we get disenfranchised, [we’re] disconnected because nothing that they’re saying actually relates to us… So Vote or Die, and getting out the vote, those things [were] laid out there so people could understand about the process. We started Vote or Die, and the whole process was all full of shit. The whole shit is a scam.” Diddy said people can vote if they want to, but it probably won’t change anything. “At the end of the day, I’m not telling you not to vote. But I’m saying be a realist and know that they’re motherfucking kicking some bullshit up there,” he said. Even if your vote is actually counted (it probably isn’t), it still won’t matter who wins, anyway. They will all carry out the exact same policies with marginally different rhetoric backing them up. It should be obvious by now that this system is not only inherently corrupt. It is failing miserably and in the midst of collapse. So what do we do? How do we solve these problems? Do we look to authority? Do we put someone else in...

McDonald’s franchisees say the brand is in a ‘deep depression’ and ‘facing its final days’

  McDonald’s franchisees believe the brand is in a “deep depression” and could be facing its “final days,” according to a new survey. “We are in the throes of a deep depression, and nothing is changing,” one franchisee wrote in response to the survey by Nomura analyst Mark Kalinowski. “Probably 30% of operators are insolvent.” Another wrote, “The CEO is sowing the seeds of our demise. We are a quick-serve fast-food restaurant, not a fast casual like Five Guys or Chipotle. The system may be facing its final days.” More than a dozen franchisees expressed frustration with McDonald’s management, saying that CEO Steve Easterbrook’s turnaround plan — which includes initiatives like all-day breakfast and a shift to digital ordering kiosks — is a distraction from the core issues of McDonald’s, like food quality and customer service. “The lack of consistent leadership from Oak Brook is frightening, we continue to jump from one failed initiative to another,” one franchisee wrote. A second wrote, “I have been in this business since the early 1970s but have not seen us this leaderless in all my time.” The company’s reaction to their frustration, one franchisee claimed, is for operators to “get out of the system” and quit the business. McDonald’s breakfast hash brown McDonald’s Several franchisees complained about all-day breakfast, saying that it has complicated kitchen operations and goes against Easterbrook’s repeated promises to simplify the menu. “The system is very lost at the moment,” one franchisee wrote. “Our menu boards are still bloated, and we are still trying to be too many things to too many people. … Things are broken from the franchisee perspective.” Franchisees also criticized the “Create Your Taste” program, which allows people to customize their burgers with premium ingredients. “They are throwing everything they can against the wall to see what will stick,” one franchisee wrote. Kalinowski interviewed 29 US franchisees covering about 226 restaurants for the survey. McDonald’s has more than 14,000 restaurants in the US. In response to the survey, McDonald’s said it’s hearing a different story from franchisees — specifically pertaining to all-day breakfast. “We’re hearing from customers and the overwhelming majority of our 3,100 franchisees that all-day breakfast is a hit!” a company spokeswoman...

TROOPER WHO STOPPED SANDRA BLAND INDICTED FOR PERJURY, AND TO BE FIRED FROM DPS

TROOPER WHO STOPPED SANDRA BLAND INDICTED FOR PERJURY, AND TO BE FIRED FROM DPS

avatar
  HEMPSTEAD, TX — A DPS trooper was charged with perjury in connection to a contentious traffic stop last summer where a black woman wound up arrested for assault and then died three days later in jail. Hours after the indictment, the Texas Department of Public Safety began termination proceedings. A grand jury indicted Trooper Brian Encinia on the misdemeanor count, alleging he lied about how he removed 28-year-old Sandra Bland from her vehicle during the July traffic stop. The same Waller County grand jury decided last month not to indict any sheriff’s officials or jailers in Bland’s death, which was ruled a suicide. Bland remained jailed following her arrest because she couldn’t raise about $500 for bail. Encinia, who has been on paid desk duty since Bland was found dead in her cell, also faces a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Bland’s family. The misdemeanor charge carries a maximum penalty of a year in jail and a $4,000 fine. Encinia, who is white, pulled Bland over on July 10 for making an improper lane change near Prairie View A&M University, her alma mater, where she had just interviewed and accepted a job. Dashcam video from Encinia’s patrol car shows that the traffic stop quickly became confrontational. The video shows the trooper holding a stun gun and yelling, “I will light you up!” after Bland refuses to get out of her car. Bland eventually steps out of the vehicle, and Encinia orders her to the side of the road. The confrontation continues off-camera but is still audible. Encinia’s affidavit stated he “removed her from her vehicle to further conduct a safer traffic investigation,” but grand jurors “found that statement to be false,” said Shawn McDonald, one of five special prosecutors appointed to investigate. McDonald declined to say whether the grand jury considered any other charges. Neither Bland’s attorneys nor the Texas Department of Public Safety immediately returned messages seeking comment about the indictment. Department Director Steve McCraw said after the incident that Encinia violated internal agency policies of professionalism and courtesy. About two dozen protesters attended Wednesday’s press conference where the indictment was announced. Speaking afterward, one protester, Jinaki Muhammad, called the misdemeanor charge “a slap in the face...

America Isn’t Getting More Liberal — It’s Getting More Libertarian.

America Isn’t Getting More Liberal — It’s Getting More Libertarian.

avatar
This week the New York Times’ “Room for Debate” columnists discussed the question “has America become more liberal?” Debater Molly Worthen, a professor at UNC Chapel Hill, is no libertarian, but even she sees what many others have been saying: America isn’t getting more liberal or more conservative — it’s getting more libertarian. A wide range of Gallup polls agree. Take guns. In 1990, just 19 percent opposed “stricter laws covering the sale of firearms.” In 1991, barely half opposed a law that would “ban the possession of handguns.” In 2014, those numbers had risen to 52 percent and 73 percent, respectively. On gay rights, Americans have also turned dramatically libertarian. In 1988, just a third of Americans thought gay and lesbian relations should be “legal.” In 1996, only 27 percent thought gay marriage should be legal. In 2014, Americans favored legalizing both homosexuality and same-sex marriage by 69 percent and 60 percent, respectively. Views on marijuana underwent a similarly quick turn. In 1995, just 25 percent of Americans favored legalizing marijuana. In 2014, it was a 51 percent. On immigration, Americans are also much more open today. In 1996, only 38 percent opposed further restrictions on immigration; in the 1980s, just 41 percent favored legalization of unauthorized immigrants. In 2013, those numbers were 63 percent and 69 percent, respectively. On economic issues, Americans are also growing skeptical of bigger government. In 1993, 37 percent thought businesses should be regulated less; in 2014, a plurality, 49 percent, wanted fewer regulations. In 2000, just 38 percent said it was not the federal government’s responsibility to ensure every American had health care; last year, 52 percent said health care was not the government’s job. This corresponds with an increase in the percentage of respondents indicating that the federal government has “too much power.” In 2003, the first year the poll was taken, 39 percent agreed. In 2013, the number hit 60 percent. This isn’t a fluke. Political scientists Peter Ens and Julianna Koch pooled together hundreds of thousands of poll responses over the last fifty years to measure the public’s “policy mood” (a measure of preference for more or less government). They found the public has become dramatically more economically conservative...

Carter told his medicinal regiment to Sawyer“I smoke two joints in the morning, I smoke two joints at night, I smoke two joint in the afternoon, and it makes me feel all right. “Edibles are also good when traveling when smoking is not permitted.” The future is bright for the 91-year-old humanitarian. Carter has resumed his house building for Habitat for Humanity and continues his weekly prayer service. “Marijuana is God’s medicine. I find indica is better than sativa, but there are plenty of good hybrids.“ Carter wasn’t endorsing pot smoking for everyone. “There is the right place and the right time to spark up a bowl. Don’t be a pothead but also be aware of the potential benefits of cannabis when used in moderation with the right music. “I was never of big fan of alcohol but weed is the medicine I need.

The process could also provide a cure for other latent infections The team of Temple University School of Medicine said the breakthrough marks the first successful attempt to eliminate latent HIV-1 virus from human cells – and could be a cure for other latent infections. ‘This is one important step on the path toward a permanent cure for AIDS,’ said Kamel Khalili, PhD, Professor and Chair of the Department of Neuroscience at Temple. ‘It’s an exciting discovery, but it’s not yet ready to go into the clinic. It’s a proof of concept that we’re moving in the right direction,’ he added, Temple University makes promising steps towards cure for HIV In a study published by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Dr Khalili and colleagues detail how they created molecular tools to delete the HIV-1 proviral DNA. HOW THE PROCESS WORKS Researchers based the two-part HIV-1 editor on a system that evolved as a bacterial defence mechanism to protect against infection. When deployed, a combination of a DNA-snipping enzyme called a nuclease and a targeting strand of RNA called a guide RNA (gRNA) hunt down the viral genome and remove the HIV-1 DNA. Dr Khalili’s lab engineered a 20-nucleotide strand of gRNA to target the HIV-1 DNA and paired it with a DNA-sniping enzyme called Cas9 and used to edit the human genome. From there, the cell’s gene repair machinery takes over, soldering the loose ends of the genome back together – resulting...

Former CEO of Glitnir bank Lárus Welding was sentenced yesterday to five years in prison for breach of trust in the so-called Stím Case, RÚV reports. Jóhannes Baldursson, former director of capital markets at Glitnir, received a two-year prison sentence, and Þorvaldur Lúðvík Sigurjónsson, former head of Saga Capital, was sentenced to 18 months in prison, both for breach of trust. The sentences were announced in the Reykjavík District Court. The defendants are also to pay defense costs. All three were charged because of loans given to the company Stím for the purchase of stocks in Glitnir Bank and FL Group. The stock purchase amounted to almost ISK 25 billion (USD 192 million, EUR 176 million). It was financed in large part with a loan from Glitnir bank, the only collateral being the stock itself. The accused all pleaded not guilty . Despite extensive questioning in the Reykjavík District Court, it’s still not clear who was in charge of the holding company Stím. Registered leaders of the company did not appear to be its actual directors. Lárus was previously acquitted by the Icelandic Supreme Court in the so-called Vafnings Case. Moreover, he was acquitted in the Reykjavík District Court in the Aurum Case, a verdict which was revoked by the Supreme Court. Jóhannes recently received a three-year prison sentence in a case regarding a loan given by Glitnir bank to a company owned by Birkir Kristinsson.

  SAN MATEO, Calif. — John McAfee, Libertarian Party candidate for president of the United States. The mercurial McAfee, who this year announced his run for the presidency under the Cyber Party to “disrupt the political status quo” and warn of the “dangerously ignored issue of cybersecurity,” said in a phone interview today he will join the Libertarian Party, where he is likely to land the nomination. “They have (10) candidates (for president), none of whom have personality,” said a laughing McAfee, who is is running on a platform to pardon all marijuana users in prison and “stop the U.S. from being the world’s policeman.” The unconventional presidential run is McAfee’s latest headline-grabbing adventure. The 70-year-old cybersecurity pioneer, who was named as a “person of interest” in an unsolved 2012 murder case in Belize and later claimed he is a target of a Central American hit squad for his criticisms of the Belize government, has been the subject of profiles in USA TODAY, network news, Wired magazine and the international press. His fame has also landed him the role as subject of a forthcoming miniseries on cable network Spike. McAfee said a representative from the Libertarian Party contacted him Tuesday about representing the party. The party’s convention is in late May in Orlando, Fla. MCAFEE16 John McAfee – 2016 The Lexington, Tenn., resident, whose campaign headquarters is in Opelika, Ala., said he is confident he’ll get the nomination, and have his name on ballots in 50 states. “For me, it’s important to get boots on the ground,” he said.

Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, who was the Libertarian Party’s presidential nominee in 2012, has repeatedly said he is likely to run but has not yet declared. Expect to see plenty of McAfee in the coming months, and not just on the campaign trail.

  Arlington, VA – On Monday, following the passage of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016, the Department of Justice Asset Forfeiture Program announced that it would defer all equitable sharing payments for forfeitures, both civil and criminal, to state, local, and tribal partners for the foreseeable future. Following the DOJ’s announcement, the International Association of Chiefs of Police issued a statement, saying that the decision was “detrimental to state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve.” Following these announcements, Lee McGrath, Legislative Counsel at the Institute for Justice, issued the following statement: “Law enforcement revealed that its true interest in forfeiture is policing for profit—not public safety,” said Lee McGrath, Legislative Counsel for the Institute for Justice, in response to releases from the Department of Justice and International Association of Chiefs of Police. “The recently enacted Consolidated Appropriations Act does not stop police and prosecutors from chasing criminals. They’re frustrated because Congress put on hold their chasing cash.” “State legislators from Florida to Ohio to California should take notice of law enforcement’s reaction to the DOJ’s announcement” McGrath added. “Many police, sheriffs and prosecutors want to circumvent state laws because outsourcing forfeiture litigation to the federal government is lucrative. State lawmakers should enact an anti-circumvention provision that respects federalism and refocuses law enforcement’s attention on stopping crime by allowing only seizures greater than $50,000 to be forfeited under federal law.”  ...

Update: ‘Active Shooter’ Reported In San Diego – False Alarm Hysteria

**!ATTENTION!** An active shooter has just been been reported in building #26 at Naval Medical Center San Diego. All… Posted by Naval Medical Center San Diego (NMCSD) on Tuesday, 26 January 2016 The San Diego Medical Center reported on their Facebook page, that an ‘active shooter’ was present in building #26. Anyone in the area were to run, hide or fight the shooter everyone else, advised to keep away. Evidently, this entire thing was a SNAFU. UPDATE 1 Police forces reported that there were no injuries, no shooter or anything. This was solely a case of hysteria and false alarm. This incident is a product of fear and hysteria, that has been incessantly propagated by the constant fear being peddled by the establishment. Whether it be the scumstream mainstream media, or the government itself. The facility has been having active shooter drills for months. Once a few loud noises were detected, everyone’s programming basically activated. In light of this nonsense, we have a video that you may...

Chip Please: The First Passenger to Use a Micro-chip to Fly, Has Arrived

Chip Please: The First Passenger to Use a Micro-chip to Fly, Has Arrived

Andreas Sjöström in the Arlanda Airport using his micro-chip to board his flight STOCKHOLM – Andreas Sjöström used a $70, rice-sized micro-chip to board a flight from Stockholm, Sweden; Arlanda Airport (SAS) to Paris with a, ‘flick of the wrist’. Sjöström is the vice-president of the digital technological consulting firm, Sogeti, had the micro-chip implanted in his wrist, ‘just below the skin’ several weeks before his flight. In an interview with Mic, Sjöström was quoted as: ‘The system reacts as if you have the ordinary NFC sticker from the airline, so you’re eligible to pass through and it recognizes who you are.’ Near Field Communication (NFC) is based upon the same premise as your credit, or debit cards, each containing an individual Personal Identification Number (PIN) which is picked up and decoded by the readers. These PINs can allegedly only be written into the system by the airlines itself. Scandinavian Airlines have installed NFC readers prior to this instance for its EuroBonus Gold members. In this Youtube video, Sjöström described how the process worked: ‘In this video I use the chip to pass through Stockholm Arlanda airport, through security, at the lounge, and finally through the gate to the aircraft.’ Sweden: Hot-Bed For ‘NWO’ Agenda This is where the article gets nitty-gritty. If you aren’t ready for the truth, how did you even find this website?? Anyway, let’s break this down. Sweden has long been slowly rolling out the agenda of these ‘elite’ (cess-pit scum). But first, what is the agenda? Many well-established researchers have out-lined the final objectives of this long-time agenda as this: a one world government, with a one world army and police force, a microchipped population hooked up to computers, a one world bank with a digital currency. Well, so far we are seeing all of these tasks unfold on a daily basis (if you’re aware of the end goals, that is). We’ve reached the point it really doesn’t matter what you’re ‘opinion’ is on this matter: Facts are facts and the time for games have been over since yesterday. Just a few days ago, Britain’s ex-prime minister Tony Blair (who we have confronted in the past) has called for an EU Army, which will...

BREAKING: Dow Plunges More Than 300 Points For the 4th Time This Year…

BREAKING: Dow Plunges More Than 300 Points For the 4th Time This Year…

avatar
Friday, January 15th, ushered in a 400 point plunge in the DOW Industrial Average, erasing the only gains seen this year. This instance has made this the fourth time in 2016 that it has plummeted at least, 300 points. This fact, considered with the lowest opening day in US history, is painting a very obvious picture… Of course, those in the pathetic mainstream media, continue to downplay the ultimate reality – we are facing another collapse. Yes, this is totally fine: George Soros, who has been responsible for collapsing currencies, economies and countries as a whole. The fact he benefited from the 2008 crisis… has said that we are now in another ‘crisis’ reminiscent of 2008. When an ‘elite’ (cesspit scum) declares we are now entering dangerous economic waters – we should be paying attention. With oil playing an integral role in the slipping integrity of markets, Russia has responded to the lower oil prices, ahead of the currency war they are engaging with the United States. China’s dwindling economic growth is also playing a role. Here’s a picture of mainstream economic analysts, learning of this breaking news: The We Are Change video below, was released last year, when the economy was on the verge of collapse in August, plummeting over 1000 points.

Monsanto Kicks Off New Year With 1000 Job Cuts

Monsanto Kicks Off New Year With 1000 Job Cuts

avatar
(At the bottom of this article, are We Are Change videos detailing some of the heinous actions Monsanto has participated in, and the nature of GMO’s) The St-Louis based corporation that has been responsible for genocide, the oppression of small farmers, the destruction of the environment and subsequent protection from the US government has announced that it will be forced to cut 1000 jobs, to ‘streamline’ the business. Monsanto made the announcement January 6th, in the wake of the US Department of Agriculture stating that farmer’s incomes would drop to 38% which is the lowest it’s been in over a decade. Last October, Monsanto also announced it would cut 2,600 jobs to save $1.1 billion and $1.2 billion Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant commented that the international community’s chaotic course when it comes to their currencies, as the main driving force behind this decision. Last November, Monsanto reported a 23% slump in their revenue, when the predictions were pointing toward more expansion. The exportation of corn, their main cash crop dropped by 20%, with other products following the same trend. Controversy has been following the shadowy corporation within recent years. Some examples such as Oakland suing the Bio-tech corporation for environmental destruction, the presence of a restriction on GMO products in 60 countries, a complete ban in 16 countries, Russia proclaiming it will be the world’s largest organic food exporter within 4 years and one of the largest protests in human-history against the corporation; are painting a picture – it ain’t the currency that’s the cause of financial strife. It’s the people standing up and saying ENOUGH of the bullshit, and the results are continually flooding in. Let’s keep it rolling people. Become informed and up-to-date by checking out the videos...

George Soros: It’s the 2008 ‘Crisis’ All Over Again

George Soros: It’s the 2008 ‘Crisis’ All Over Again

avatar
SRILANKA – As we’ve provided evidence for in numerous articles and videos – the global-economy is on the verge of a massive collapse. Surprisingly, Thursday globalist insider and gopher, George Soros, stated in an interview that we’re facing, ‘2008’ all over again. If Soros says something, you can bet that it’s the Rothschilds and or the Rockefellers speaking through him. The Sunday Times in Sri Lanka reported and quoted Soros, who stated that China’s current economic destabilization equates to a ‘crisis’. Bloomberg followed that by reporting Soros as stating, “… China has a major adjustment problem,” he added, “I would say it amounts to a crisis.” Within 30 minutes Chinese stocks fell over 7% on Thursday, forcing the China Securities Regulatory Commission to shut down it’s circuit breaker system. According to the Shanghai Trading Commission, the system was intended to prevent an economic downward spiral. This is the second time this week alone China has been forced to shut down its trading due to economic free-fall. The US DOW fell 300 points already, and some such as David Kelly, chief global strategist at JP Morgan Funds have compared this to last August, when US stocks plummeted over 1000 points, signaling the current volatility. World-wide markets are ‘shuttering’ due to this lack of stability. This story is developing and will be updated accordingly. Check out our sponsors at the Dollar Vigilante, as they have been following the global economic collapse since the start, and have the best answers for individual preservation. This is a video We Are Change released shortly after the 1000 point drop last August, check it out: Below is a We Are Change Video, detailing how George Soros helped to participate in the destabilization of Ukraine. Is it any surprise Russia banned Soros’ ‘charity’ organization as a ‘security...
